Success does not come by chance, but by focus and dedication. It does not matter where you are born, what matters is how do you make the most of what you have. Avnish Chhikara, 22, had to pay for his B.Tech costs by offering home tuitions, but now the young man works for Amazon and earns Rs 67 lakh a year.
There is really no alternative for hard work, and it pays off in the coming years. This success story of a farmer’s son from Sonipat in Haryana, speaks volumes of how you are the master of your destiny.
Avnish is the son of a farmer-cum-driver from Kraweri village and a student at Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram University of Science and Technology (DCRUST) in Murthal, Sonipat. His achievement, that he attained through sheer willpower and commitment, has made his parents extremely delighted and proud.
Speaking to the media, Avinash said,
There were times when I had no money to pay my university fees, but I managed somehow, partially by giving tuitions.
He further exclaimed that after his engineering classes, he used to study for 10 hours daily. It is during the pandemic, he applied for an internship at Amazon with a monthly stipend of Rs 2.40 lakh. The American software company later offered him a package of Rs 67 lakh per annum after being impressed by his efforts during the internship. The deal might be worth up to Rs 1 crore after a year.
Professor Anayath, DCRUST vice-chancellor, was all praise for Avnish. He expressed that he was extremely happy that a student from such humble background had achieved this milestone through hard work. He also hoped that Avnish’s narrative would inspire other youngsters to aspire for greater heights.
The above story should be motivating for many young students, however, the same should also not become a cause for of low self esteem, for those who cannot make it. Identify your strengths, set realistic goals, and then work towards achieving those pinnacles.
